My guess: movie doings, hoping to glimpse a celluloid celebrity (inserting oneself into a closer degree of separation) and checking out faux front paintovers on Broadway and Main trump other options. LeRoy's forge art demo is the only one on the list that can be combined with film gawking. Make a day of it by doing both - plus lunching and shopping in town. Maybe the film crew will have time, wit and sense of reciprocity to check out forge.
Reiterating - Forge Art Demo at Dragon Ash - (Southwest Artists Blacksmith Association) meeting, potluck, raffle.
